My Irises came, saw, conquered, and are now gone.
There are many flowers that I pick to make bouquets to enjoy in the house and at school, but irises are not one of them. I love looking at their beautiful colors in my yard.
They were beautiful and abundant.
I did not know why, until I read in this book to cut the old seed pods off so that the plants can focus on next year's blooms.
I still didn't remember until I began the daunting task of cutting the seed pods off again.
And then it hit me! I did this last year!
Boy, were the blooms were showing off, and now I know why!
I wish they could continue to flower throughout the summer, but for now, I will look forward to next year's blooms!
